Pattern No. 4 in Knitting Elegance 2016.

The Quiet Forest shawl, worked from the top down to create a Faroese-style shawl, takes its inspiration from the rich imagery of the forest. With a subtly variegated fingering yarn, it can reflect the many moods of the woods at any time of year. Choose a colour that evokes your own forest memories.

Quiet Forest is written for two sizes: shawlette and shawl.
